Vision Therapy & binocular vision examination
Assessing your eyes for binocular vision disorders is a bit different from standard eye exams. For traditional eye examinations, one eye’s visual acuity and tracking are tested. Binocular vision examinations test a variety of visual skills that are only possible with two eyes. These include:
- Eye focusing skills
- Depth perception
- Fusion – Use of both eyes in unison
- Ocular motility
- Resting position
- Eye teaming
- General visual acuity
Having working binocular vision is essential for learning and navigating the world. This is particularly crucial for children as it can dramatically impair their learning capability.
Eye & Vision Exams
We recommend coming in at least one time every 12 months for an eye exam, though more frequently is even better. Having your eyes checked is an excellent way to pinpoint any eye health conditions early on. It is also important to have an eye exam and vision exam to ensure your quality of vision isn't changing. When you come in, we'll use the most advanced vision screening and eye health testing equipment available. This includes a comprehensive eye health exam to look at the structure of your eyes. We're looking for any nerve or muscle concerns as well as the presence of conditions such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
Contact Lens Exams
If you would like to wear contact lenses, please let us know in advance. In addition to your standard eye exams and vision screenings, we'll also provide you with a more detailed contact lens exam. We will speak to you about the types of lenses that may be best for you and ensure your eyes are healthy enough for contacts. If this is your first time getting contacts, we'll talk about the benefits, how they work, and what you can expect, too.
Myopia Management Therapy
For some of our youngest patients, myopia management therapy can be beneficial. This is often beneficial to children who are suffering from nearsightedness. This treatment may be able to help reshape your child's cornea – the outer lens of the eye, while they sleep, limiting the development or worsening of nearsightedness. It may be beneficial in individuals who are even genetically predisposed to develop this condition. We offer solutions such as:
- Atropine eye drops are used to treat myopia by slowing the development of this condition. It is a very low-dose of the medication commonly used to treat lazy eye.
- Multifocal contact lenses can help to reduce the progression of this condition by providing enough support to ensure the cornea shape does not change as much.
- Orthokeratology (ortho-k) is a common treatment for nearsightedness requiring the individual to wear a contact lens at night to reshape the cornea. Then, he or she doesn't usually need to wear it during the day but will have clear vision.
- Multifocal eyeglasses may be best for those who do not tolerate the use of contact lenses and can still offer improvements in vision.
If you have any limitation in your vision, we may write a prescription for eyeglasses, sunglasses, or computer glasses (for Computer Vision) for you. If that's the case, you'll be able to choose from a wide range of styles. We have over 600 designer frames available and all of the very best lenses to ensure you always have access to the best tools for improving your vision.
We carry a wide range of contact lenses. Your eye doctors will work with you to determine the proper type of contacts for your needs based on your eye's size, health, and overall vision needs. We offer soft contact lenses, daily wear contacts, toric lenses, multifocal lenses, spherical, gas permeable, and much more. Many times, we have the contacts you need in stock. Give us a call today to refill your older prescription or to get an updated prescription.
Emergency Eye Treatment
If you are experiencing any type of emergency eye situation, do not wait to call us. We are available to you during normal business hours for immediate needs. This includes for conditions such as:
- Red-eye (including pink eye)
- Foreign objects in the eye
- Damage to the eye of any other type
It is very important to get help immediately if you are suffering from any changes in your vision or the function of your eye.
Ocular Disease Management
Many people will experience changes to their vision over their lifetime. In most cases, we can manage them. We encourage you to come in to speak to us about any vision or eye concerns you have. We'll conduct a thorough eye exam and diagnose anything present. We then provide ongoing treatment and management of your vision. We can help you with:
- Dry eye treatment, especially when this becomes chronic. We offer all of the latest options including prescription eye drops and surgical procedure support.
- Macular Degeneration
- Red eye treatment, for those who have strained, sore eyes, or those that may have an infection or damage to their eye surface, we can offer treatment options.
Talk to us about any other condition you may have as well. Let us work with you to manage it properly. Put our team to work for you today.
LASIK can change the way that you see. Our team knows many men and women want to be able to see without the need for glasses or contact lenses. That's where laser-assisted in-situ keratomileuses or LASIK can help. We provide LASIK management including before surgical screenings and after surgery eye care. Let us help you find out if you qualify.
